    Frequently Asked Questions

    As a community solar subscriber, you receive solar credits on your normal electric bills, bringing them down. Solstice then bills you for those credits at a fixed discount, giving you savings month after month. For instance, if your share produces $50 worth of credits in a month, you'll have $50 subtracted from your electric bill, and then Solstice will bill you for those credits at the discount set out in your contract.

    We know it sounds crazy, but there really are no upfront costs to join community solar, and there are no additional subscription fees, either. You'll continue to pay electric charges as you currently do, but they'll go largely toward supporting nearby solar, and you'll be billed for solar credits (at a 20% discount, giving you savings) by your community solar provider. Solar shouldn't have to cost extra, and with community solar, it doesn't!

    We'll allocate you a portion of your local solar farm that matches your annual energy use. It may take a few months for your project to finish being built and connected to the grid, so we'll ask you to hang tight until then. We'll let you know when your project is ready to turn on, and when it does, you'll begin to see credits on your bills for going solar.

    Nope! The discount you receive on your solar credits is locked in for the duration of your contract, and you'll have the option to renew your contract at the end of the period. Since you only pay for the energy you use, but at a fixed discount compared to your utility's rates, you'll always pay less for credits you get from community solar than you'd pay for traditional energy from your utility.

    Solstice is a Designee of the Illinois Shines Program, also known as the Adjustable Block Program or “ABP.” Illinois Shines is a state-administered program implemented by the Illinois Power Agency to promote new solar development and solar PV systems. Solstice’s community solar farms produce local solar power, and Renewable Energy Credits, or “RECs,” which are sold to Illinois utilities to help Illinois reach its renewable energy goals.
